Call For Submissions

your-book-here_fun-36EMSA Publishing is an independent online publisher who knows there is more to selling books than simply uploading them to a web site. Compelling stories, attractive covers and effective editing is a start, but that’s not how books are sold. Building an author platform is key, especially for new authors. EMSA Publishing offers book editing, cover art, eBook and print book formatting and distribution in popular online bookstores with competitive royalty payments. Web page set up and blog tour planning is also available in order to help new authors establish a foothold in the continually evolving world of ePublishing.

EMSA Publishing is currently seeking publication-ready, novel-length, fiction manuscripts for publication by new and established authors. Submissions should be polished, in excess of 35,000 words, and never before published or self-published. All genres are welcome with the exception of erotica or stories with graphically violent or abusive content.

We do not charge reading fees. A professional cover, editing, author page, inclusion in our online bookstore, and marketing assistance is included as a part of your contract. Note that while we are available to mentor authors with the marketing process, we expect authors to take on the bulk of book marketing by making themselves available and remaining active on social media. Authors are expected to be participate in the editing process as well.

Interested authors may email a query letter (no more than 1 page) with a brief synopsis (no more than 2 pages) and the first 20 pages of the manuscript in the body of an email (no attachments, please), to query @ emsapublishing.com. Please include the novel title and your name in the subject line.

At EMSA Publishing, our goal is to help you, the writer, become an author.

      Hi, Jason.

      I have not worked with short story collections yet, and I will consider previously published works if they are unpublished at the time of contract signing.
